This book is a selection of work from my Creative Thinking Class. Students produced ten pieces of artwork, and then wrote ten poems to illustrate their work. We were inspired by the writing and teaching of Beth Olshansky and Geof Hewitt. After writing and reflecting, we had a poetry reading and celebration. This book commemorates our time together perfectly.
